A woman has filed suit against the driver who she claims failed to yield the right-of-way to her vehicle.

Alice Mosley claims she and her four minor children, Ra Lisa Mosley, El Lisa Brown, Dor Lisa Buford and Zion Knox, were riding in a 1995 Mercury Sable that Alice Mosley was driving north on Kingshighway at its intersection with Bunkum Road in Washington Park on July 6, 2010, at about 3:13 p.m. Suddenly, defendant James E. Ayers, who was driving in the same direction, struck her vehicle.

Because of the collision, Mosley and her children sustained severe injuries, experienced great physical and mental pain and anguish, suffered great physical disability and disfigurement and lost her enjoyment of life, the suit states. Mosley also incurred medical costs, according to the complaint filed July 2 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Ayers negligently failed to keep his vehicle under proper control, failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to observe Mosley's vehicle, failed to stop his vehicle in time to avoid a collision and failed to yield the right-of-way, the complaint says.

In her five-count complaint, Mosley is seeking a judgment of more than $250,000, plus costs.

She will be represented by Dennis M. Field of Strellis and Field in Waterloo.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 12-L-344.
